The way the crowd volume is tangibly effecting opponents is making it’s way around the NFL.
Jay Adams of the Atlanta Falcons reported on Twitter that, “Falcons practicing with sound system at 124 decibels. Average NFL crowd registers at 108.”
Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk commented on the Twitter post: “Two weeks ago the Bears were flagged for nine false starts when they played the Lions at Ford Field, leading coach Jim Schwartz to set aside a game ball awarded to the raucous Detroit crowd. Last week the 49ers dealt with the crowd noise slightly better — but still had five false starts and wasted two timeouts trying to get plays called.
“The crowd in Detroit, if you hadn’t noticed, is loud.”
